Jones wants you to know that you better learn his name, or in fact you are going to need to learn it. I assume this means that Theca plans on staying in our collective faces all summer long? It’s safe to assume that’s the case. Below check out the track and the promo video for Summer. Rest assured we’ll keep you updated on all the news you’ll need regarding said album and it’s release.

If you do not have Breaking Atoms, then please please please, pick it up. One of the top Hip-Hop albums of all time. For me to write anything else about it would to do a great disservice to the album. So I’ll shut it.
